Aww, look how cute

Haha, some “psychologist” linked to me because of my use of “cretards” and “IDiots.” As if using silly terms to describe those that hold completely silly beliefs ever holds ground as a decent form of argument. Perhaps I could also explain to this “psychologist” how plays on words help to explain the overall perception of the individuals holding these beliefs. If you want a few laughs, check out his/her site. She/he seems to think Freud was an amazing psychologist, among other things. I would encourage you to read it if you’re ever bored and need a few laughs…

It’s rather sad when the educated make the same arguments that have already been laughed at over and over again, had the flaws pointed out, and STILL make them. I won’t get into these arguments as they are just the same emesis we’ve heard before, but it is, nevertheless, both funny and sad. Said “psychologist” also seems to rather like Eugene Scott, who held a doctorate in education, followed by absolutely no use of said degree. What a role model!

See, I can use only tiny words that even a creationist psychologist can understand!

    She/He cited me to help make his straw man in “A Naturalistic Fairy Tale-Part XIII”

    I wonder if the “psychologist” actually knows that (s)he’s making a straw man and is being intentionally dishonest, or if (s)he’s that stupid…

    *Note: I refuse to call the individual in question a psychologist as I have slightly more respect for most psychologists than for this individual, that being said, I hold traditional psychology in very low esteem favoring neurobiology and psychiatry.

    Just being picky here…cretarded IDiot that I am. First, yes I’m that stupid. Second, Freud was a psychiatrist (psychoanalyst) and not a psychologist. Third, Freud was an atheistic naturalistic evolutionist. Fourth, you use these words because you cannot formulate better arguments (Cretard and IDiot). Fifth, any child in elementary school has mastered the art of name calling. Perhaps it’s time for you atheists to grow up? What do I know? See point one.

    Cute, I use these terms because I can’t formulate better arguments?
    Perhaps I’ve seen the futility of arguing with individuals whose ability to nonparsimoniously fit evidence into their twisted dogmas rivals the ability of octopodes to squeeze into the smallest of crevices.

    I think that’s what I said.

    Did you not gather that all words in that post other than “I” were links to where I repeatedly made arguments other than name-calling? It gets to a point where the only thing we can do after summarily explaining why you are wrong time and time again is to assume you are intellectually dishonest or incapable of unbiased thought. In short, debating you does very little good for anyone. The only individuals that may be convinced already have enough information out there to discover the empirical evidence substantiating each claim. This is why I support scientific journals such as PLoS ONE. Now, since they are all free, how about reading up a bit from the evolutionary biology section?

    I like how he admits that he is too stupid to know that he is using the Straw Man argument, a known logical fallacy. I’m sure he stayed as far away from logic courses as he could when/if he was in school.

    Oh good – he’s here! Now I don’t have to go over there.

    Mr. thecountryshrink, have you ever abbreviated a word?

    you use these words because you cannot formulate better arguments (Cretard and IDiot).

    Notice the capital ID in IDiot. It is a typographical emphasis because one can be an idiot w/out being an IDiot and it’s much easier than typing “cdesignproponentsists”.
